How I Was Duped By A Pastor by AustineVidal: 9:21am On Jul 24, 2019
Please pardon my typos.
When i finished school, things became difficult for me after i spent all my money to sponsor myself. I prayed but no answer was coming
I looked for job or help without seeing any in sight, then a family friend told me about a pastor who wants to sponsor him abroad so when he gets there he will be paying back gradually, but he told me i should go instead that since he has a job now and he believes in my capability to hustle under any circumstance. That was a relief to me coz i was almost getting depressed, so i was happy coz i have always had the ambition of traveling abroad of which i always regret using my money to go school.
He told me to go and do my international passport of which i sold some of my valuables to do.
We now went to meet the pastor in his church he told me that i will have to bring 100k that when I get there and start the work i will pay the rest unfailingly but i told him i have no money that he should add the 100k to the amount I'll pay back, i told him i am willing to pay more than the amount I'm supposed to pay back when i get there but he refused. My bros told him we will get back to him, my bros started telling me how genuine it is and that the pastor is the owner of the upcoming church meaning he can't just run away, he told me to look 50k that he will assist me with 50k. My mom went and borrowed 50k for me then we took it to the pastor with my passport he gave me assurance that the processing will start immediately.
After one week i we called him and it wasn't going so i chatted him up on whatsapp that was when he told me he traveled to Niger Republic for a crusade that he will be coming back in a month time. He told me that my papers are being processed and sent me police report that wasn't bearing my name as if am a fool.
After that he didn't come online again for two months i actually went to his church but couldn't find anyone there. I dropped so many messages for him on whatsapp, he came online and was shouting at me telling I'm not patient that he is going to cancel the process so told him to give me back my money and passport but he said when he comes back that i should go to his church someone will give me my passport.
I went to the church but couldn't find anyone there only to be called on phone by someone who told me that my passport is inside the offering box so i checked and found my passport there and he has not been responding to our messages and blocked us.
I'm very depressed now
Just felt like talking to someone before i die
I've made and touched good money before and you know the feeling of having money and not having again at all.
Pls can i get a Sponsor,
Someone to sponsor me abroad and when i get there, is either i pay him/her double of whatever amount he spent or he will be taking some percentage from my salary for some periods.
Or a job here in Nigeria ( any kind)
Please I'm very serious about this
The money my mom borrowed i don't know how to pay back.
I'm very down now

my humble suggestion to you if truly ure real is that, try and purse for a while and go and study procedures and what it takes to go abroad.

imagine someone will sponsor u, that means he will pay flight ticket and visa fee, and ask you to pay 50k and u did, he requested for passport and u foolishly give out, do only time ur passport need to go out from u,is when ure getting to embassy to get visa, that means u submit it to them not individual, next time don't mumu around and don't be desperate
